Cynthia Barnett’s book, “Blue Revolution: Unmaking America’s Water Crisis” is the first to call for a water ethic for America. From backyard waterfalls and grottoes in California to sinkholes swallowing chunks of Florida, “Blue Revolution” exposes how the nation’s green craze largely missed water – the No. 1 environmental concern of most Americans. But the book is big on inspiration, too. “Blue Revolution” combines investigative reporting with solutions from around the nation and the globe. From San Antonio to Singapore, Barnett shows how local communities and entire nations have come together in a shared ethic to dramatically reduce consumption and live within their water means.
